Metadata Updated: June 26, 2017

This database contains locations of Hospitals for 50 states and Washington D.C. , Puerto Rico and US territories. The dataset only includes hospital facilities and does not include nursing homes. Data for all the states was acquired from respective states departments or their open source websites and then geocoded and converted into a spatial database. After geocoding the exact spatial location of each point was moved to rooftops wherever possible and points which have been physically verified have been labelled 'Geocode', 'Imagery', 'Imagery with other' and 'Unverified' depending on the methodology used to move the points. 'Unverified' data points have still not been physically examined even though each of the points has been street geocoded as mentioned above. Missing records are denoted by 'Not Available' or NULL values. Not Available denotes information that was either missing in the source data or data that has not been populated current version.
